Sweet European Indulgences

Desserts To Satisfy the Sweet Tooth

While traveling alone in Europe, I’ve often found some restaurants aren’t thrilled with single diners, expecting the customer to order just one dish and a glass of wine. I have had a couple of unpleasant experiences and have actually  been refused a table in Siena and Florence, Italy. Though I haven’t encountered this problem so much in recent years, I do try to order a full meal at dinner, including a dessert. Considering some of the desserts I’ve had, this isn’t really a chore. A collection of some of my sweet indulgences the last few years.

Toilet Paper Rex

Jurassic Generosity

Taking a walk in my sister’s neighborhood, we ran into these two young dinos handing out excess toilet paper. Luckily, we had a sufficient supply. Humor and laughter is so important in this time of great stress.  They made my day. Bravo.
